Wow, that is great! Are you going to do a male also? cheers Applause

Thanks Sarlooswolfhound and cattlecollector. I might make a male, but I think that I might wait until the brands release all of their figures. If I make one now and a major brand makes one too most people would likely go for the brands less expensive option. This is why I made a female because it is less likely that a brand will make a female than a male, I think. If you anyone is interested in just a male I could change some of the female copies into males.

It is really a fantastic work! So young and a lot of talent. Very Happy I am a little sexist with figures, most of my ungulates are males but I really appreciate your work. I hope you keep sculpting and working, your talent is obvious. cheers

Thanks Roger and 4U I am glad you both like her. Next time I think I'll make a male because there seems to be some of interest in males. I forgot to pot a picture for scale, so here it is

Thanks bjarki12 I have decided to make a male next, but this time I want everyone to picture a pose for me to do, so post a picture of a pose of the saiga you would like to see me make. I will make copies of him too so the pair will be available eventually.

I think unusual species don't need unusual poses, I love walking figures, mainly when they're ignoring the photographer. Laughing

I am working on the male now, I have the majority done but I would all suggestions before I finish off this model. I know he is a little more static than the photo that Roger gave me, i can still change the pose a little if it is preferred. There will be copies of him as well.

He is just a little bigger than her as seen in the picture above.

He's great! I think the horns should be slightly thinner, but that might pose a problem for molding. A wonderful model! cheers

Maybe like this ?

Very beautiful work! I think you have wonderful talent in this!
I think also that Christophe is right about head size, it could be a bit bigger. Thinner horns are always more difficult to do but if you want you can work on them a bit after curing-this should make the work easier.
You sculpting work is better and better with each creation, I love the details on face of this male saga Very Happy

I forgot this thread. Nice models! I love this specie and it's strange that any of the great brands (well, collecta or mojo  Laughing ) haven't still made a one.

Thank you all for the compliments. Sorry I haven't visited this topic in so long. Sorry I changed the pose to those of you who liked it. Please don't mind the blue. I just got some colored pencil stuck on my hands and under my finger nails. The blue should come off during texturing and that wouldn't matter anyway because it is being painted. He is still a work on progress so criticism is still welcome.

Wow, he looks great. The one thing I would suggest would be that his front foot is flat against the ground.

Great Saiga!!
They look great, Never knew that someone already made a Saiga :) and not only one but two, a Sagia couple. What scale are they? they look small but I just wondered.

Did you finished him?
Thanks for sharing!
